Chayse Porter – “Flowers in Chains”


“Flowers in Chains” is a lovely new single from Chayse Porter, melding jangle-pop and psych-pop amidst an introspective thematic pursuit, described as “a study in contrasts, where scorn and serenity twist together on the same vine.” The track represents the final single from the forthcoming album Endless / Boundless, out on January 26th via Earth Libraries.

Jangly guitars and contemplative vocal musings drive into twangier guitar affections, asking “do you need somebody to lean on? did you wake up to find them gone?” into the perkier rise. The title-referencing vocal turn thereafter further embraces the jangly guitar frolicking, with a psych-friendly glow rounding into the mid-point’s “deafening sigh,” sequence. “Flowers in Chains” enamors with a laid-back jangle-pop charm, bolstered by flourishing psych-friendly additives, like the effervescent build-up in the final 30 seconds.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
